This hotel was meant just as one night stop on our trip from the Arches N.P. to Point Arena, CA. We looked for nothing special. It seemed to be a perfect price/performance ratio which it would be IF: The hotel is huge and if you have your room in the West Tower and there is no parking spot next to... More

Stayed here for a night after staying the previous night at the Sands. Although this place is so much better then the Sands, it's still a bit outdated. I stayed in the older East Tower. The rooms are decorated from the early 90's. The rooms are very spacious and the king bed was pretty comfortable. The TV is a small... More

I love John Ascuaga's Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks , Nevada. I have for YEARS TAKEN THE BUSES TOURS UP to here. I love to stay here as it is only about 3 to 4 miles to downtown Reno, Nevada. You can easily take a taxi cab back and forth. A lot of times the tour buses will stay overnight... More

This was the first time I stayed here. The room was good sized and everything was clean. And there was even free internet with decent speed. My only problem was with the air conditioning. The fan worked but no cool air was coming out. After the first night I called the front desk as I was leaving the room for... More

We just spent two inexpensive nights at the Nugget in Sparks, Nevada. They have a large indoor pool with glass walls and a huge pool with waterfall. There is also a large hot tub for those 14 and over as well as six mini pools for very young children. Next door is a well equipped fitness center. There is a... More

I used the Nugget as a pivot point in my Fall Color Photograph trip, the same as I did last year. All the issues I shared last year, pretty much still exist. Thinking the room would be quieter if I had a railroad yard-facing room, instead of the freeway, I was wrong. I like fresh air in a room, but,... More

Hugh room with beautiful furniture and luxurious bed linen and towels. Sink in room in addition to bathroom which was handy for tea/ coffee making. Booked it as it was a steal at $26, plus $9 resort fee. When we checked out the bill was incorrect by over $10 so just make sure to check when leaving. Drink was cheap... More

We've stayed at the Nugget a few times before over the years. We stayed this past weekend for the first time since the Nugget was sold to a new ownership group. There are some minor changes, but I am surprised that the new ownership, which has been in place for nearly a year, has done very little with the property.... More

Just finished our one night stay at JA Nugget. We came up for a Colorado State football game. This place is conveniently located in Sparks (4 miles from Reno). We got a room in the East Tower which are supposedly nicer. The rooms feature nicer furniture and are roomy. It's your standard size hotel room. Comfy bed but they don't... More
